Mayor's Bike Stolen Across Street From Bike Summit

SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker's call for a more bicycle-friendly capital city has failed to produce immediate results.

Becker says his bike was stolen Friday outside city hall after he spoke at the Utah Bike Summit across the street.

The thief used bolt cutters to cut the lock and took off with the silver, 15-gear FILA bike as the all-day summit took place in the main Salt Lake City Library.

Becker, who phoned in a report to the police department, says he'll use light rail and walk until either the bike is recovered or he buys a replacement.

Becker told the summit that cycling is "integral to having a high-quality community."

The summit was devoted to a variety of issues facing cyclists.
